Zimbra not affected by log4j (CVE-2021-44228)
After intensive review and testing, Zimbra Development determined that the 0-day exploit vulnerability for log4j (CVE-2021-44228) does not affect the current Supported Zimbra versions (9.0.0 & 8.8.15). Zimbra Collaboration Server currently uses log4j1 version 1.2.16 which doesn't contain the lookup expression feature that is found within versions 2.0 to 2.17, which is the cause of the vulnerability. Also, Redhat (CVE-2021-4104) vulnerability does not affect the Zimbra Collaboration Server version (8.8.15 & 9.0.0). For this vulnerability to affect the server, it needs JMSAppender, which the ZCS Server does not use, and the ability to append configuration files.

Hi, as you can see here: https://zimbra.github.io/installguides/ ... quirements you can not use Windows share or NFS share as Zimbra storage. You need to use a directly attached disk or a SAN disk formatted with ext4 or xfs filesystem.
You can use an external NFS storage only for backups.

ok while instaling Zimbra is it required 'dnsmasq' ?
please see below and confirm is this correct process.

Install DNS server
In this step, we will install dnsmasq as our DNS server. However, before installing dnsmasq, we will first need to disable systemd-resolve as it runs on port 53. The DNS server dnsmasq also runs on port 53 which can cause port conflict.

Take a look here, this guide is very detailed: https://blog.zimbra.com/2018/01/install ... 16-04-lts/
It also covers dnsmasq installation.

Hi, you need to use Ubuntu server 18.04 LTS 64bit. Desktop versions and ubuntu 20.04 are not supported.
